Forum: etree Subject: Mac OS X guide - NOT Mac OS

Is there a guide for Mac OS X anywhere on the web? All I can find are one for the old OS.

I want to know the correct way to rip audio since there is no EAC on OS X. What can I use to track long wav/aiff files since there is no CD Wav for the OS X.

X-CD-Roast (http://xcdroast.org/) contains the paranoia libraries in it and some folks have reported that they got it to work. I found it a bit difficult to set up and get running but it is possible, if a hassle to use, and I don't believe it supports read/write offsets like EAC does though I could be wrong.

As for tracking, I find there's no point to trying to do it exactly right myself - I just split tracks wherever I want and then use the "shntool fix" command to shift to sector boundaries. Timewise it's a wash - the time I save not making myself blind trying to find which sample to cut, I just use up with shntool fix.

You can also use shntool to track a file - check out Mark Domyancich's site at http://mtdshn.home.mchsi.com/macosxshn/ for info on that.

What about just using the Finder and drag and drop? I put an audio CD in and it shows up on the desktop. The one long file I have on there appears as a 746mb AIFF files. I can drag that onto my hard drive. Is that considered ripping it?

You know, that happened to me the other day too...forgot it happened. I have no idea how that works. Maybe try the drag-and-drop a few times and see if the files are identical or not? Try an honest-to-goodness rip and see how it compares?

Seems fine, I tracked it with Sound Studio and all sounds good.

Is there an app that can compare the quality of the aiff's to see if there any differences?
